WONDERS: FRSC returns accident victim’s N1m recharge cards

Federal Road Safety Commission on Monday returned N1m worth of recharge cards, among others, to a road accident victim, Mrs. Felicia Obanla, the News Agency of Nigeria reports.
The Ogun Sector Commander, Ayobami Omiyale, said in Ota while handing over the items to the victim that the accident involving five vehicles occurred on Friday 17 in the town..
Omiyale said, “An articulated vehicle coming from Lagos to Sango lost control around Sango Ota tollgate and rammed into a Mazda bus, with number plate LAGOS XV 388 KJA.

“This also rammed into a Nissan Pathfinder jeep marked TF 368 KJA, and this jeep seriously hit Obanla as she was about to come down from a commercial motorcycle.

“She lost consciousness immediately and the FRSC Rescue Team took charge of the scene and conveyed victims to nearby hospitals.”

Omiyale said although 17 people were involved in the accident, only five were injured.

He said N11,000 cash, a cell phone, ATM cards, deposit slip and keys were also recovered at the scene of the accident.

The FRSC chief said it was difficult to locate Obanla because the victims had been discharged when the FRSC officials visited the hospital to hand over the materials.

Omiyale said, “We started searching for her because of the worth of materials recovered and later found her at Medicare Clinic where she was receiving treatment.

“Some people had earlier come to our office, claiming to be her relatives but we insisted that we want the handing over covered by the media.”

He blamed the frequency of accidents in the area on bad roads and recklessness among road users.
